How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Basel

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport cafes and less time at the security checkpoint on your way to Basel, just follow these suggestions:

  • Keep your boarding pass and passport somewhere accessible. They'll be the first things you'll be asked to produce by airport security personnel.
  • You'll need to place your music on pause for a short while. Headphones and earphones must be removed and put in a tub to be X-rayed. The same applies to items such as coins and keys.
  • Electronic devices such as tablets, laptops and phones need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • When it comes to flying with gels or liquids, all passengers are allowed a quart-sized clear resealable bag to store containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Airport security staff may ask you to remove your shoes in preparation for entering the body scanner. Pick a pair that slip off easily. There's nothing more tiresome than having to do your laces up over and over again.
  • Pack any multi-tools or other dangerous items in your checked luggage. Security personnel don't permit these aboard the aircraft.
